One of the defining principles of our firm is supporting the community in which we live and work.
Community involvement is a long standing firm tradition – from the United Way Days of Caring Program, to the Pushor Mitchell Kelowna Apple Triathlon, to the pro bono legal services we provide, members of the firm contribute through donations of time and money to a broad range of activities, including:
We are pleased to partner with UBC Okanagan and the Pushor Mitchell Gold Medal Leadership Prize which is a $10,000 annual prize for a top graduating student who demonstrates academic excellence and outstanding leadership. It is available to a student who graduates from the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences. Recipients of the award include Shirley Hutchinson (2011), Liam Randhawa (2012) and Karly Drabot (2013).
We're also delighted to participate in the United Way Days of Caring Program. On October 22, 2012, Pushor Mitchell closed for the afternoon with over 100 staff and lawyers volunteering over 400 hours for projects that were as diverse as the skill level of the volunteers themselves. Projects were tackled at a dozen organizations across Kelowna - everything from painting walls at Kelowna Community Resources to building food hampers for the Kelowna Community Food Bank to shelter clean up at SPCA to raking leaves for the Salvation Army to building planter boxes at Spring Valley Care Centre.
